NXT Halloween Havoc host Shotzi Blackheart appeared on WWE’s The Bump this morning and revealed that she will have four costume changes on tonight’s show. Some of her looks will be inspired by horror icon Elvira. Blackheart also revealed that her mini-tank will be decorated for Halloween.
Blackheart will also take over the NXT Instagram Stories feed before and during tonight’s Halloween Havoc episode. She will be posting exclusive shots with a behind-the-scenes look at the action.
On a related note, the USA Network tweeted a video of Blackheart giving her 5 tips for adding “havoc” to your Halloween holiday. She elaborates in the video but her 5 tips are – set the spooky mood, carve pumpkins, revisit your favorite wrestling match (hers is Rey Mysterio vs. WWE Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero at WCW Halloween Havoc 1997), watch your favorite scary movie, and have lots of candy.
